FELICE 83 reflects the soul of Italy, inspired by the sophisticated streets of Florence and the rustic warmth of the Tuscan countryside. This cozy NYC newcomer showcases a relaxed ambience, with subdued lighting, exposed brick walls lined with linear shelves filled with wine, as well as rich, tufted leather seats. Italian wines and flavors from Tuscany will now be served in a modern space, infused with traditional elements, on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Felice 83 features classic Italian dishes from the menu of its sister restaurant, Sant Ambroeus, as well as tasting items and small plates, prepared by Chef Antonio Pamplone.

We had a great brunch at Felice 83. They have great bloody mary’s, yummy paninis, and my personal favorite the Uovo al Forno. We’ll be back!

My girlfriend and I have been wanting to go here for a while so we grabbed a last minute reservation. The restaurant was full on a Thursday evening. The service was outstanding as was the ambience. We started with the Classico and Meatballs which were both outstanding. We ordered the Gnocchi, the Cacio E Pepe, and a side of Brussel Sprouts next. The Gnocchi was fresh and delicious and the Brussel sprouts were fine. We were both disappointed by the Cacio E Pepe. It was missing the creamy decadence that we both enjoy about the dish. We were surprised given that this is a dish that they are known for.

I had the salmon and crispy brussel sprouts which were great. My only comment about this restaurant is that at night it is very dark inside. While it creates an interesting atmosphere, they could make a little bit brighter!!

Plain mixed salad was very good but cost $15!!! Eggplant parmigiana was GREAT!! Fried artichokes not good at all - too much batter-like covering. Just fry them plain!

Arancini was underwhelming, but the burratta was very nice. Enjoyed the pasta dishes, though the pesto was very unique. They did a great job of keeping waters filled. Did not offer desert though, and that was a bit bizarre. Enjoyed the meal.

The food is terrific and it's gotten pretty popular recently so the noise level has gone up and the bar was a bit slower than usual in getting drinks to the table. But it's one of the best places in the area to find a delicious meal--especially the cacio e pepe!

First of all, I adore this place for dinner. I went for the first time for brunch and was disappointed. The avocado toast was so bland. We got there close to opening on a Saturday and service was quite slow. I’ll be back to Felice but not for brunch!

Felice 83 - good Italian on the UES. Chicken Milanese is delicious. Pastas are al dente. Arancini is amazing! Gets crowded w/ UES crowd - so make resos. Although, sitting on the other side (where music happens after 8:00) is nice, too.

If someone were in the neighborhood it is an OK place to have a meal. This is a very popular place so maybe I didn't make the best food choices. I might give it a second try.

If you don’t care about flavor and fancy sitting in crammed noisy spaces and overpaying for things, this is your spot!

Dinner was pleasant. Two of us ordered from the Restaurant Week Menu and two of us ordered a la carte. The entrees seemed the same on both menus and it was just a question of two persons not wanting dessert. We were seated at a nice window table and service was good. The food was unexceptional.

we were there for restaurant week so it was a great value, the food was great, our server was very nice but dropped off at the end when they got busy, we ended up waiting over a half an hour after finishing eating our dessert to just to get our check.

We had no problem making a reservation at the time we wanted. We weren’t given the option of sitting outside, but that ended up being okay because it started to rain while we were having dinner. The food is excellent. Both my sister and I agreed the pasta tasted fresh and homemade. However, the tables are extremely close together and the noise level is nearly intolerable. I spent most of dinner yelling, “WHAT?” across the table because I could barely hear. Also, I had to routinely flag down our server to ask for things - a second drink, the bill, etc. Overall, it was very good and I’d return again, but maybe make sure to sit outside instead.

Seated 20 minutes after reservation time. Then had to wait another 30 minutes until order was taken. Service is horrible but food is decent.
